Rupert Sanders appeared with all smiles outside of his home, waving at cameras while calling the cops to get the photographers off of his property in Hollywood Hills, California on Thursday (August 23, 2012). It might be Rupe’s first smile since news of his cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart broke last month. It was rumoured that the “Snow White and The Huntsman” director was doing everything he could to save his marriage. Rupert was said to beg his wife of 15 years Liberty Ross to take him back as well as give him another chance. Meanwhile, the former “British Vogue” cover girl was still playing cool and non-committal. However, Liberty Ross set a series of conditions that must be met for a possible reconciliation. The British model required Rupert Sanders to remain faithful and that he must be a better husband. She also banned him from directing from “Snow White and The Huntsman” sequel, which made the father-of-two obviously disappointed because the film was his directorial debut and he had hoped to get the chance to be involved in the follow up.
